    Om Goodreads I discovered that you posted ten reviews, mostly five star, in one day. The rest were four star. That is amazing. You’ve been doing a lot of reading, and reading first-rate books without a lousy story in the bunch. That is so unusual I am hoping you will tell us about these books, and your unusual run of good reading. This can only happen once in a blue moon.

      I didn’t read them all in one day…or even in one week. I rarely visit Goodreads so I finally got around to posting ratings for them.
